As you could read in my last post, I recently picked up some stuff from Brigette’s Boutique.
One of those things was this awesome nail polish by NARS.
It’s my first NARS polish but I’ve heard many great things about them.
Usually I’m not a fan of expensive polishes. Simply because … THEY ARE EXPENSIVE and my wallet doesn’t agree with me when I make expensive purchases! 😊
So you can imagine how happy my wallet was when I saw this polish on sale for only $5.95 at Brigette’s Boutique!
They usually retail for $20, like at Barneys
In my opinion is a more expensive version of my favorite winter color by O.P.I., “Lincoln Park After Dark”.
It has the same dark, deep purple shade. Like a really dark aubergine/eggplant color.
First off I put on a layer of my go to base coat by Essence.
Then I topped it with 2 coats of a clear polish (any clear polish will do).
After the two coats of clear polish I move on to the actual color I want my nails to be. So I put on two layers of NARS – Endless Night on top of it.
Then I took the clear polish again and put two more coats on top of the NARS polish.
To seal it al I used a top coat by Essence.
It is VERY important to let the coats dry completely before putting on a new one. As you can imagine this takes a little time, so don’t do this when you are in a hurry to rush to work/school or worse… 10 minutes before meeting your date!!! Don’t say I didn’t warn you, now!!! 😉
I started doing my nails like this about 2 months ago and find that it helps keeps your nail polish stay on much longer than usual. Before I could go for about 3-4 days before having to redo them.
Now, with this method, it stays on for at least 6-7 days!!! Which is VERY convenient since I don’t always have time to do my nails or to go to the salon.
If you’re going to try this, let me know how you like it and how long your polish stayed on. And please share your pictures! I’d love to see all the beautiful colors you chose to wear on your nails!
What’s your trick to keep nail polish last longer?
